Checkered Life

Days of black.
Nights of white
One has highs.
The other has lows.

We’re born with counterparts.
We’re born with parallels.
We have thoughts of black and white.
Life is a fushion of good and bad.

We design this verve.
We argue, we fight.
Out there is a big love.
You and me in this checkered life.

  5. Gorgeous poem…..the way back and white of a checkered board is used as a metaphor is amazing! Thoroughly enjoyed reading this poem.
